This is a good thread.
I encourage people to donate as they can.
the other opportunities include giving others a VL Tshirt or mug as a christmas/festival gift.
As for me, i had made my mind up a long time back. [ when i was in debt and had no income ] that once i stabilize myself i would make a huge contrib to VL. Since that is still in progress.. i am not going to do that in the coming months.
However, rest assured, for every one person like LLL who motivate others to move the cause forward, there is atleast one like me, who are still waiting for the right opportunity to contribute.
Hers my advice, if you cannot do it now, dont worry, make a plan, predicated on something, and declare the plan here. so when you come back to check this space, you can remember your plan and follow through with it.
